Trees to their Highest Purpose
Forest carbon credits — a potential future value
Timberlands can play a key role in the global initiative to reduce the impacts of fossil fuel consumption. Forests are a type of sequestration project that can participate as an offset in carbon markets. Our forests are managed for a wide range of objectives such as timber production, recreation, biodiversity, water quality and fish wildlife habitat, and therefore provide all of these benefits along with reduced greenhouse gas buildup in the atmosphere. While this market is still in its infancy, forest carbon credits may have the long-term potential to provide additional value from our timberlands, and are consistent with our sustainable land management objectives.
